In Celebration of Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga’s collaborative jazz album, Cheek To Cheek, they will join forces for an incredible tour in 2015. Bennett and Gaga first met in New York City in 2011 after the Robin Hood Foundation gala. They later recorded a rendition of “The Lady Is a Tramp,” and began discussing their collaborative album. The album was inspired by Bennett and Gaga’s desire to introduce jazz songs to a younger generation, since they believed that the tracks had universal appeal.

Cheek To Cheek took over a year to complete and features jazz musicians of Bennett’s quartet including, Mike Renzi, Gray Sargent, Harold Jones, Marshall Wood, and pianist Tom Ranier. In addition, jazz trumpeter Brian Newman, a long-time friend and colleague of Lady Gaga appears on the album with his jazz quintet. Jazz soloists on selected tracks include tenor saxophonist Joe Lovano, trumpeter George Rabbai and flutist Paul Horn.

The first two single off of the album were “Anything Goes” and “I Can’t Give You Anything But Love.” They both reached number one on Billboards Jazz chart. The album as a whole reached number one on the Billboard 200 with over 130,000 copies sold its first week.

SXSW 2014: Crave Online Showcase Featuring Semi Precious Weapons, MellowHype and Surprise Guests

March 13th, 2014
Comments Off

The rumors were true. I’d been tipped off earlier in the day about MellowHype being more than they appeared and Semi Precious Weapons bringing a friend to watch their performance. Given the timing for MellowHype and the fact that this was the only SXSW showcase Semi Precious Weapons would be at this year, I had a good feeling about things. Rusty’s was more than ready for some more sonic magic after an already impressive start, care of Antiquiet’s daytime showcase. Read more…

Lady Gaga Confirmed for SXSW 2014 Performing at Stubb’s BBQ For Doritos #BOLDSTAGE

March 6th, 2014
Comments Off

Just when you thought it might not happen, there goes the neighborhood. The one, the only, Lady Gaga has been confirmed as performing at the annual SXSW Music Festival. This performance will take place on Thursday night March 13th at the famous Stubb’s BBQ. This news has been confirmed by the business magazine Fast Company’s sister site FastCoCreate, in a post by Jeff Beer. (via a Tweet from good friend Cameron at SXSW.) Last week, we brought you the news that the city of Austin had previously denied a request for a permit to have Lady Gaga perform at the gigantic fake Doritos machine (known as the #BoldStage) that is set up just north of the convention center each year. It seems the logistical creases have been ironed out, and instead of by the monolithic vending machine, the event has been cleared to happen at Stubb’s BBQ. Read more…
